Wilson: Disappointed to concede so late

Wilson: Disappointed to concede so late

Wilson felt the amount of injury time was excessive, but said he would respect referee Scott Mathieson's decision after the Blades extended United's unbeaten start to the League One season to 12 games.

Wilson said: "It's not like a defeat but I think it's very, very disappointing to concede at the time we did. I mean - 97 minutes - you'd think the game would've been over before that, but it wasn't and that's down to ourselves. We have to play to the whistle and we didn't do that.

"There's one ball been hogged into the box, it's coming down with snow on it and we've been flat-footed and we haven't dealt with it and that's why we've come away with 1-1.

"The rest of the game we've dealt with most things in the box, but unfortunately on that particular one I think we thought the game was over and sadly it wasn't, but we're still asking for a reason why it was 97 minutes we played.

"We didn't feel that it was needed to put that amount of time on, but the referee's got his reasons and we'll respect that. It's not the referee's fault we conceded a goal."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
